Lake Atitlan Coffee Tour | Lets Stop And Smell The Coffee

Location:
Guatemala

Lake Atitlan Coffee Tour

Lake Atitlan Coffee Tour, join us in Lake Atitlan Guatemala for a coffee tour from tree to cup. The basin surrounding Lake Atitlan, located in the highlands of Guatemala, produces some of the most distinctive and aromatic coffee in the world.

Lake Atitlán provides an ideal environment for growing coffee—the region has a cooler climate than most other parts of Guatemala, there is plentiful and consistent rainfall each year, and the area is surrounded by the rich soils of the Atitlán, Toliman and the San Pedro volcanoes.

Lake Atitlan Coffee Tour | Let Stop and Smell the Coffee

Calling all coffee lovers, if you love coffee as much as we do then no trip to Guatemala would be complete without the experience of a coffee tour. Located along the fertile slopes of Lake Atitlan, local coffee cooperatives have been growing and roasting organic coffee for generations.

Our coffee experience will take you to the villages of San Juan La Laguna and San Pedro La Laguna in the heart of Lake Atitlan where we introduce you to the coffee production process, from growing, harvesting, cleaning and drying the berries, roasting and finally to when it’s poured fresh into a cup.

Our tour will conclude on the patio of a coffee cooperative where we will enjoy the breathtaking views of the surrounding volcanoes and the lush coffee plantations while enjoying a fresh cup of coffee.

Join ‘Grow Your Own Cure’ for this unique 1-day tour that will immerse you in a journey where you will experience the coffee growing experience firsthand.
